Go to the Dreams resort in La Romana. This was NOT an excursion booked through Carnival we found it on our own. A short taxi ride (15 min) from the port. Hotel has visitor pass for the day all food and drinks included!

The people are friendly and very proud of their country (compared to what they think of Haiti). Explore the city. See the big "department" store on the main street (left from the port) to pick up stuff you missed. Walk up the hill to the big Catholic church and there are lots of vendors.

I hate giving a low review because I didn't really get to see anything. All I can say is book an excursion there is nothing to do right off the ship, there were a few little tents and a little market area for very limited shopping. We were going to book an excursion but our group couldn't decide on one and just didn't do one which I truly regret. Once we saw there was nothing to do right off the ship, we thought we'd hop on a bus and head downtown but there were so many people coming back saying not to take the bus there that as soon as they got off the bus you were harassed by people trying to sell you stuff worse than the Bahamas and since it was raining we just ended back up on the ship.
